I'm not sure Upstart isn't supposed to kill them. Let's suppose
upstart is able to track all pids forked for livbvirt-bin job start
(and it doesn't do so, even if the "expect daemon" stanza is used:
this may be an upstart bug): there would be a pid for libvirt-bin and
many pids for kvm guests. Suppose you want to kill the libvirt-bin
job: how can you tell upstart to kill just libvirt-bin and not kvm
guests? I don't think upstart jobs are so flexible.
